There are many parks in Manhattan that aren't central park. The newest one is called High Line and took over rail track that was abandoned 30 years ago.
When I was living in Paris I enjoyed walking in a similar park (much longer than the High Line) between Bastille and gare de Lyon called Le Viaduc Des Arts aka La Coulée Verte [map it] under the part they used the spaces for art galleries which is pretty cool too.
The design and plantings on the High Line are based on the naturally occurring plant life that sprung up when trains stopped running.
The High Line is located on Manhattan's West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues. Section 1 of the High Line, which opened to the public on June 9, runs from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street.
As you can see it is quite a difference from the 'before'.
Don't ever tell me that cutting grass is no fun ... especially with the The Muwi concept designed by Yuli Sung, an automated mower barreled shape to compact grass cuttings into balls and disks, so the only thing you will have to worry about is playing with it! How fun is that!? But why all the cool stuff are always just a "concept" because I'll buy one even if I have no garden ... yeah that's how much I love this!
"Muwi first acknowledges the entire size of the land and automatically cuts the grass. The cut grass, which is created upon cutting the grass, is stored inside. As the cut grass begins to accumulate inside the machine, Muwi constructs and compresses the cut grass into two types of blocks".
Bronze Bowl, two sizes Large $960 and Small $250, available at matin gallery in Berverly Hills.
The origins of this John Pawson's new collection lie in the new cisterian monastery in bohemia that he recently completed. The tableware is composed of the essential equipment for the monk's refectory and represents the elegant minimum for the contemporary table. For more information visit matin gallery.
And to finish, I just love those bronze garden lanterns ... It's a limited edition so hurry ;-) matin gallery is located 9905 Little Santa Monica Boulevard, Beverly Hills California.
